Ingredients

    1 cup: Black-Eyed Peas, Dry
    1 cloves: Garlic, chopped
    4 cups: Water
    2 cups: Onions, chopped
    1 cup : Celery, chopped
    2 tbs: Canola Oil
    pinch: Cayenne
    2 tsp: Allspice
    pinch: Thyme
    1: Sweet Pepper, Green or Red, chopped
    1 cup: Sweet Corn, fresh or frozen
    2 cups: Chard, Kale, Collards, or Spinach, chopped
    3 cups: Diced Tomatoes (28-ounce can works)
    2 cups: water
    2 tsp: Salt
    1/2 tsp: Pepper, ground

Directions

1. In a covered sauce pan, bring black-eyed peas, garlic cloves and 4 cups of water to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until tender, about 45 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in an nonreactive soup pot, saute the onions and celery in the oil on medium heat for about 10 minutes.

3. Stir in cayenne, allspice, and thyme and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

4. Add the bell peppers, stir well, cover, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.

5. Stir in corn, tomatoes and water.

6. Cover and bring just to a boil; then add the greens, gently simmer until tender, and remove from the heat until the peas are ready.

7. When peas are tender, add them, the garlic, and their water to the soup pot.

8. Add salt and pepper to taste ( I use 2 tsp of salt and a generous grind of pepper, but everyone's level of flavor is unique)
